Grand Theft Auto fans think that they might have uncovered another hint about GTA 6 through the all-new GTA Online Open Wheel Series races – with one track potentially looking like a new map.

For weeks and months, Grand Theft Auto fans have been scouring GTA V and GTA Online in the hopes of uncovering something that will point them towards confirming details about the next game in the series.

We’ve seen in-game job adverts link to long-standing rumors about GTA 6’s storyline. Players have suggested that the Diamond Casino heist update gave them another hint, while others have ended up finding years old Red Dead Redemption 2 teases instead. However, some believe that new teases have been added right under our noses.

GTA fans think that the all-new F1 races hold the key for GTA 6.

One fan, tenet007, posted their theory to Imgur detailing how they believe that the GTA Onlne Open Wheel Series race track – The Height of Society – appears to show the new location for GTA 6.

In their post, the GTA fans showed how the bottom right side of the track, from above, appears to bear a resemblance to the shape of Florida. Though that’s not all. On the left-hand side of the map, tenet007 notes that a few of the corners interlink together to look like the shape of Mexico. 

Now, while some fans may think that this is a bit of a stretch, tenet007 tried to add a bit more credence to their claims with a post from the supposed Rockstar insider who posts on GTAForums – gonnaenodaethat. 

At the end of February, when the Open Wheel Series races were released, the supposed insider posted saying “cartographers start your engines!!” with some believing that the Scottish poster was nudging people towards checking out the shapes of the F1 race tracks.

Of course, it is difficult to say as to whether or not tenet007 has got their suspicion correct and that these race tracks hold the key to a GTA VI announcement. 

Other apparent GTA leakers have claimed that a game reveal will come at the end of March so, we might not have all that long to wait anymore.

Grand Theft Auto movie reportedly coming before GTA 6

Reports from sources who correctly revealed both the Resident Evil 4 remake and The Witcher Netflix series before their official announcements, are now claiming that a Grand Theft Auto movie is in development.

Despite no news of another GTA game (expected to be GTA 6), Rockstar is apparently focusing on another medium entirely for the franchise. According to WGTC, the Grand Theft Auto movie is likely to release before the next installment of the game.

It’s been over seven years since GTA V was released, back in September 2013. Red Dead Redemption 2 was Rockstar’s next major project, released in October 2018, and they have been pouring lots of resources into the ever-popular GTA Online.

But, perhaps their next project really is a movie adaptation of the iconic GTA franchise, as these sources have supposedly been on the money before.

A GTA movie would no doubt be a box-office hit.

The report claims that “the project is reportedly in the early stages and will loosely adapt the events of GTA V, presumably bringing us live-action versions of characters Michael, Franklin and Trevor.”

At this point, it’s only possible to speculate about who would play these characters, but potentially the voice actors from the game would step up into the live-action roles.

It’s possible that GTA Online’s success, which continues to add new players and is something of a cash cow for Rockstar and publishers Take Two, means they are in no rush to release the sixth game.

The movie will apparently still focus on the main characters from GTA V.

The movie industry is currently in a downturn, for obvious reasons arising from lockdowns, but if the movie is still in the “early stages”, it may be some way off still. Not to mention, filming is also made more difficult in these uncertain times.

The same can be said for game development also, and with not even a peep out of Rockstar regarding a new GTA game, that seems to be a long way off still too.
